Hi, I am just wondering what kind of pings people get from different ISP's, and I am just wondering what plans you are on. I am on Slingshot 49.95 plan and I get a wide range of pings from 78 to 500 to 800 then back to 100 then 400 and so on and so on. Its not very stable. I have contacted slingshot but they don't seem to care.
Personally I dont recommend slingshot for gaming (i know all about this as I'm with them as other who are have very simialr problems) as even the plan your on isnt too good for pings. As far as pings go anything 70 or lower is all right but yeah 20ms ping would be a dream of mine!
i'm on slingshot and i get exactly the same, i used to play on iconz servers, now they dont even show up in the game browser. What servers you having a problem playing on? Slingshot is rubbish for gaming... has been since telecom unbundling. I gave gaming a break for a few months its still the same now playing in nz - massive ping spikes. So i tried out aussie servers. All good except for a little higher ping. So give internode, gamearena a go.
I actually just changed to Orcon. Now I get 30ms to 50ms. Slingshot are the worst I.S.P around. I cant even imagine why anyone would stay with them.....all fine until you need something from them......then...BOOM! the muppets at the call center get involved and I'm sorry to say is all over red rover.....I even asked, actually begged them to help....but they could not even care. Anyway enough of the past. Its all good now... GO ORCON!
